    Plugin tutorial by GameTutorials



    This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to mcstats.org:

    • A unique identifier
    • The server's version of Java
    • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
    • The plugin's version
    • The server's version
    • The OS version/name and architecture
    • The core count for the CPU
    • The number of players online
    • The Metrics version

    Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true.

    This plugin also uses bStats to collect information. By default, bStats sends the following data:
    • - Your server's randomly generated UUID
    • - The amount of players on your server
    • - The online mode of your server
    • - The bukkit version of your server
    • - The java version of your system (e.g. Java 8)
    • - The name of your OS (e.g. Windows)
    • - The version of your OS
    • - The architecture of your OS (e.g. amd64)
    • - The system cores of your OS (e.g. 8)
    • - bStats-supported plugins
    • - Plugin version of bStats-supported plugins
    Note, that plugin authors can send custom data, too. All data is public so you can see which data they send. Also notice all sent data is anonymous and we do NOT link the sent information with the server (e.g. server xyz is using plugin zyx) and we also do NOT store the ip of your server.

    If you don't want that your server sends data to bStats you can disable it by setting enabled to false in the bStats config file. The config can be found in the /plugins/bStats/config.yml file.

    Quite good, but would like it to go faster. You should probably also update it to 1.13.2

    looking for the colors to smoothly rotate through its color options, color change is too slow, and armor breaks the second you take it off.

      The plugin was never designed to change the colour smoothly, this isn't advertised as a feature and the way it works is shown in all three of the videos available on the plugin page. Armour breaking is a configurable setting in the config. Cheers for the 1 star instead of asking in discussion...

    After I changed messages.yml
    Items in the GUI can be taken away
    I have not modified the parameters in other configurations
    Hope that the message.yml can modify the language of the instruction

      Hello! Please ask all questions in the discussion. You can grant permission rainbowarmour.notify to achieve this

    Love this! I think that you should use a config or something to set rgb color values and armor points/durability, some of these in a plugin such as the Rainbow Armor Smooth Plugin! I also think that whenever you do something such as add lore enchants or custom enchants, etc... And have it keep the lore and enchants, etc... Kinda like Galaxy Armor on Treasurewars.net...

      I have always wanted to add smooth colours to the armour but I've never had enough time to sit down and get it to work properly but its somewhere Id like to go. I don't see what you mean about lores, post on the discussion and we can have a chat!
